Fox boasts highest All-Star Game viewership since 2010.

Viewership ratings for Tuesday’s All-Star Game were the highest in four years, according to ratings released today by Major League Baseball.

Fox’s telecast of the game attracted 11.34 million viewers, the most since the American League beat the National League 3-1 at Angel Stadium in 2010. The last All-Star games for Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera in 2013 and Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter on Tuesday helped the game achieve its first viewership increase in back-to-back years since 1993 and 1994.

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and right fielder Yasiel Puig were among the top five players mentioned most often via social media. Here’s a graphical breakdown of the game’s social media impact:
